Plug Orchids - Just Plug'em In..

Here is an interesting trend that you may have seen.. small orchids grown in plug pots.   Here are some photos of plug orchids - they are called "plug orchids" because the size of the pot is a plug size making the plant a plug plant.  From this small pot (usually 1 1/2 inches, 3.81 cm) small orchid plants are then transplanted into three inch pots (all the while maintaining a tight growing space for the orchid) until they reach the mature size usually in a four inch orchid growing pot.  Many orchid plants start there life in a plug pot, then go to a three inch pot, then a four inch pot.. The growing process must be followed for the orchid to reach a mature size.  Woohoo!!  Enjoy!
